How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I try and capture through art the beauty of nature chiefly insects, birds and fish! I draw the original in black ink, pencil and gouache for accuracy and an authentic feel.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Raising a smile. With so many people embracing nature again, I feel honoured to be able to draw from real life so that anyone can hold a piece of the natural world without harming the source. Transferring those drawings onto glassware, ceramics, textiles, jewellery and of course paper and cards, is an absolute joy.
Am delighted to have been awarded several awards from RHS.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Claire Vaughan Designs - An observer of the natural world, an artist of the natural world.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

As a British designer of homeware and gifts, we create china, linen, glassware, cards, prints and much all capturing the beauty of nature through my detailed art. We’re proud to sell our work to organisations such as RHS, Natural England and UK wildlife trusts.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

Guildford College far too many years ago to divulge!

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

I exhibit mostly online but also see outlets/stockists.

Have also exhibited with h.art for the last five years, including the last four at Stockton Bury Gardens.

Have exhibited at Canwood Art Gallery Herefordshire

Your gallery outlets/stockists:
